Discover Lehigh Valley: Pack Up the Car! It’s Time for An Old-Fashioned Summer Road Trip
Pain at the pump may have many would-be road warriors second guessing travel plans this summer, but not so fast says Discover Lehigh Valley®, the destination marketing organization dedicated to promoting tourism in Pennsylvania’s Lehigh and Northampton counties. Many fun adventures await in Lehigh Valley and they’re all just a single tank (or less) drive away for tourists living in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions. Whether travelers are looking to beat the heat, fly through the sky on adrenaline-pumping roller coasters, rock out at the nation’s largest free outdoor music festival, indulge in the area’s finest local seasonal dishes, or simply enjoy a crisp, chilled wine overlooking the bucolic countryside, Lehigh Valley is one pit-stop must on the summer travel list.
“Summertime in Lehigh Valley brings many of the region’s most popular and unique events, including Musikfest, a true music-lover’s experience not to be missed. People travel from all over the world for this event for both the incredible mix of music and the insanely delicious food,” said Alicia Quinn, strategic brand manager for Discover Lehigh Valley. “If you’re looking for a more relaxing experience, a visit to Lehigh Valley Zoo, a movie under the stars at Shankweiler’s Drive-In, a day of history at the Liberty Bell Museum, or a trip along the Lehigh Valley Wine Trail can be just the thing you’re looking for in a relaxing time away.”
